    Aquasoil Amazonia contains high levels of NH4 of slow liberation, therefore I do not deal because it he uses TPN +, when the consumption of nutrients for the plants is low (few plant mass).

    Under my point of view, only add Potassium and regular changes of water, up to seeing big lacks of macronutrients.

    Why? I like them this way..:rolleyes::D
    The problem is that I don´t have anything to clean them with. I have to buy a tube brush...

    Never ever use a brush for the lily pipes. Just soak them in bleach.

    because lilypipes are made of glass and can brake easily.

    this is also why i suggest to use (if you want to) eheim brush. it has a very short head and is very flexible and soft, using it fot 12/16 mm tubes or pipes will couse any problems, thinner maybe - be carefull!

    I have a minor issue with some staghorn algea at the moment. I have removed most infected leafs, but there still some. What could be the reason?
    I´ve read that too little CO2 could be the problem, but I don´t think thats the problem. Could it help if i clean the filter?

    Hi, layout looks great, perhaps if you clean the pipes better for his flow of water, if you have a lot of organic matter this does not help against the fight to remove the algae.

    Regards!!
